THE Leadership and Management Awards 2011

January 1, 1994

The third Times Higher Education Leadership and Management Awards come at a time of uncertainty and huge challenges for the sector. The work of professional staff will be in the spotlight like never before, and examples of best practice that can be applied more widely will be more valuable than ever.

It is fitting that the winner of this year’s top award has already faced and overcome what could have been total disaster. In September 2007, the government decided to remove funding from students taking an equivalent or lower-level qualification (ELQ). The move dealt a devastating blow to Birkbeck, University of London. But the institution’s leadership and management team picked itself up, dusted itself off and implemented a successful strategic review. To make up for the loss in ELQ cash, they refocused their offering ­ which resulted in a 38 per cent rise in student recruitment. Of course we congratulate all our very worthy winners, and I would like to thank our experienced and enthusiastic judges who took their role seriously and performed it with professionalism and aplomb.
